When I got their email inquiring about a newborn session, this sweet couple was actually still in the hospital after having just delivered their first baby! I was so giddy and overjoyed they'd been able to welcome him home right before Christmas. We scheduled a New Year's Eve session to capture their time together as a new family of three. Grateful for timing and this was pre-snowstorm weekend!Lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my absolute favorites. If you are pregnant or know someone expecting this Winter, please don't hesitate to reach out. Even if you're in the hospital, googling for a photographer you love! It's never too late to book. And since my approach is very simple and relaxed, there's no intricate posing, props or age requirement for the baby. I have photographed babies just a few days new to almost a month or more old. Usually, brand new babies will sleep for most or part of the session. But I love the wakeful looks and getting to see their beautiful eyes too. There's so much personality even early on with babies.
I was so happy that the Christmas decor was still up, we were able to get some fun shots in front of their tree. Twinkly lights and a sleeping babe? I was pretty much in heaven ;)
Loved my time with this sweet family in Norfolk. A perfect way to end 2016!
